The Hummingbird is a choppy, sawtooth tremolo modeled on the vintage Repeat Percussion unit and similar to those found in old Valco and Vox amplifiers. It is capable of producing everything from classic 50s style shimmering tremolo to a synthy, delay-like chop that turns your signal into a burst of short pings and on through to near ring modulation speeds. Using the toggle to switch between modes 1 (slow), 2 (mid-tempo) or 3 (fast) and adjusting the Rate and Depth controls will unlock a whole new world of amplitude modulation at your feet. The Rate is also expression pedal accessible to allow instant changes on the fly. Using an expression pedal also opens up the possibility of true random amplitude modulation! In addition to the modulation, the Hummingbird has plenty of clean gain on-tap allowing you to either boost or cut the signal using the level control. If the Depth is turned to zero, the Hummingbird will become a JFET clean boost! The Hummingbird is all-analog, true bypass and handmade one at a time on a gilded cloud in Akron, Ohio.
Wide range of tremolo sounds from '50s-style shimmer to synthy delay-like chop

Comments about Earthquaker Devices Hummingbird V3 Repeat Percussions Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal:
This is the most unique and colorful little trem I have used. It's definitely not lacking in character and it sounds just as good as it looks. I use this pedal in more "ambient" settings, for example in the worship at a church service, set to a more subtle classic trem sound. For my solo stuff though, I turn the switch to the "3" selection, crank the rate to about 2 'o clock, and turn the depth up roughly 3/4 of the way. This provides my favorite setting which I use in conjunction with my favorite overdrive or fuzz, a little delay, chorus, and after I'm finished torturing my amp to the appropriate level, I add in an octave pedal to push it into the 7th dimension. Loads of fun! If you get and don't care much for the trem, don't get rid of it! You can also use it as an awesome sounding boost. "This one goes to 11..."
